Pupil Premium Grant
What is the Pupil Premium grant?
The Pupil Premium grant is allocated to the school to address the issues associated with social disadvantage and support those students working below the expected levels for The Regis School. The aim of the funding is to narrow and eventually close any differences between their attainment and that of their peers. When making appropriate provision for these children we also acknowledge that not all students in receipt of Pupil Premium are educationally disadvantaged.
How is it the Pupil Premium grant utilised at The Regis School?
At the Regis School students eligible for Pupil Premium funding are identified and their progress and attainment are closely monitored throughout their time with us. Teaching staff and Curriculum teams work within each subject area to identify disadvantaged students that are at risk of underachieving and in addition to high quality teaching they ensure prompt support and intervention is put in place. In addition to this, our experienced Year teams and linked support staff meet regularly to discuss attainment, behaviour and attendance to ensure each disadvantaged student has the necessary support.
For 2022-23 the allocated pupil premium grant is approximately £355,675*.
*there are often in-year variations in funding due to various CLA PEP arrangements/ students leaving and joining during the school year.
The Senior Leader responsible for overseeing our pupil premium students is Assistant Principal, Mr S Down (Samuel.email@example.com).
